Outlook global contacts not updating

Related: Import Outlook autocomplete (NK2) files into Microsoft Outlook 2010 Figure 1 shows an example of this feature.Historically, Outlook stores this cache in a local, profile-specific file with the extension .nk2.The export begins immediately unless you're creating a new Outlook Data File (.pst) or you're exporting is to an existing file that is password protected.Outlook provides a cache of email addresses as you use them in new email messages.When you have Cached Exchange Mode enabled, Outlook by will by default cache the main Global Address List as well.

It’s no longer an .nk2 file but is now a hidden folder within an Exchange Mailbox or a file, depending on the account type in Outlook.The principle is the same, of course; however, with the nickname cache in the mailbox, the content now travels with the user.When you recreate a user’s profile on another workstation, their nickname cache is unaffected.Note: When you get a new computer, you don’t need to export contacts from your old one if your organization uses Microsoft Exchange Server.Contacts show up automatically when you configure Outlook on the new machine.
